Our Military Placement Success Stories

“Working with the Lucas Group and Jim Lose has been the best hiring experience any former military officer can ask for. The team walks you through the transition into civilian life from working on resumes to what to do on the first day you get hired. To all of the people getting out, the first call I would make is to the Lucas Group.”

“When I decided to transition from the military I spoke with multiple recruiting firms, but I did not feel like it was going anywhere. I received an email from Jim Lose about eight months out from my separation, and figured it was worth a shot to talk to him about the opportunities with Lucas Group. I immediately noticed a difference on my first phone call with Jim. He seemed truly genuine, got to know me as a person, and made it very clear that he wanted to help find the right career for me. We spoke about my goals, both personally and professionally, and we set a timeline of events moving forward. He helped with editing my resume and started giving me some information for interview preparation. About four months out from separation, Jim began approaching me with career opportunities that aligned with my goals and values. Once I decided to submit for a few positions, Jim told me that I would be hearing from Spears Lattimore to prepare for each interview. Spears was an invaluable resource in the interviewing process. He passed along crucial information for every interview that I had, and truly set me up for success. I ultimately received three great offers, all from great companies. When the offers came in Jim and Spears reached out to me multiple times to make sure that I was able to make the most informed decision possible. The offer I accepted was better than I could have ever imagined. It is for a great job that I am excited about, with a fantastic company in the exact geographical location that I was looking for. If it were not for Jim Lose, Spears Lattimore, and the Lucas Group, I am not sure if I would have even got an interview with this company. If you are thinking about transitioning you owe it to yourself to speak with Jim, Spears, and their team over at Lucas Group. I would highly recommend them to any and every one looking to make a career move.”

“It was a pleasure working with Jim Lose. He understood my military background and was patient in understanding my aspirations in the corporate world. He and his team did their best to look for opportunities that would meet my life goals. I owe him a debt of gratitude for helping me find a supervisory role with a multinational company. I highly recommend Jim Lose and his team to any other JMOs searching for new career opportunities.”

“I cannot thank Jim Lose and Matt Tanner from Lucas Group enough for their tireless efforts throughout these past two months. They both made themselves available day and night to guide me through the extensive interview process from my current job. Not only did they schedule and track over a dozen interviews via Skype, over phone and in person, but they also acted as coaches and sounding boards to bounce ideas off of. They negotiated on my behalf and offered guidance on how to negotiate every step of my interview process. They had my best interests at heart the entire time. I cannot say enough about Jim and Matt. They gave me the tools to change my life and I am grateful for all of their help.”

“I highly recommend working with Jim Lose from Lucas Group! Many recruiting firms provide a list of job opportunities to career seekers, but Lucas Group went the extra mile to understand my goals and match me to opportunities that best fit my requirements and skillset. The personal attention and dedication to placing me in the right position sets Lucas Group apart from other companies, and I would be happy to work with Jim again in the future!”

“I cannot recommend highly enough the services provided by Jim Lose and the Lucas Group. Leaving active duty is a challenge whether you have been in four years or twenty years. The TAP class will tell you about the importance of networking in order to find a job. However, building that network can be difficult especially if it is in a new career field or a new geographic area. Without these connections, you may not even get an initial interview. This is where Lucas Group is so valuable. They have the experience and connections to get you the interviews and do the follow-up that ultimately gets you the job you want. I found the interview preparation provided by the Lucas Group to be extremely helpful. In addition, the Lucas Group followed-up after the interviews so I could get some feedback about how the companies I interviewed with felt about me. I had a great experience working with the Jim. He made my transition a lot easier.”

“Jim Lose at Lucas Group listened carefully to my unique family situation and location needs. I didn’t think my circumstances would have left me with a lot of opportunities, but Jim took the time to find a great fit that lets me grow professionally and build a career. He took the time to make sure I understood the company and the nature of the job. He also got to know me and advocated on my behalf to the company, letting them know who I am and why I was a good candidate. Finally, he made sure I was well prepared for the interview. All this streamlined the hiring process and made it easier to get in the door.”

“During my transition to the civilian sector, I was understandably nervous at times not knowing what the future would hold after being in a career where every milestone was laid out before me. Jim Lose and his team at Lucas Group were always there to answer my questions and did so candidly to ensure that I was focusing on the correct aspects of the transition as the time got nearer and nearer. Overall, I learned a lot about the interviewing process through Jim and the rest of the team, and it was through this knowledge that I was able to succeed at an interview for what I’m hoping will be a long and enjoyable career in the civilian sector. To anyone looking to leave the military, look no further than Jim and the Lucas Group to point you in the right direction and get you the career you’ve always wanted.”

“Lucas Group was there for me from the moment I transitioned from the military to the day I got hired. I was thoroughly impressed with their level of professionalism as well as their dedication to seeing veterans hired. They maintained open lines of communications daily, kept me informed of the process, and coached me on interviewing techniques designed to better translate my skill sets to today’s markets. I can’t thank them enough and would recommend them to any of my fellow brothers & sisters-in-arms for transition assistance hands down. Special thank you to Mr. Damon Grimes, words can’t express how grateful I am for you and your team.”

“Thank you for all that you have done. Lucas Group is privileged to have such top notch talent like Damon Grimes and Richard Vidoli working for them. I have encouraged many people to register with you gentlemen because of the fine job you did. I believe I made the right move to go with PepsiCo near my AG亚洲国际平台游戏home town, for I have just been informed that my grandmother has been given three months to live due to cancer. It’s a blessing in disguise, and you gentlemen helped make it possible. Thank you again, and anyone that you work with, will truly benefit from your expertise. I will be writing a letter of appreciation to Lucas Group Executive leadership expressing my sincere appreciation and how professional and how great of a job you gentlemen did.”

“Military friends, pay attention! If you are in the job market, or if you are soon getting out (be it voluntary or not, separating or retiring), check out Lucas Group. All I did was give them a call, signed up, sent them some resumes, filled out a “dream sheet” and went to a hiring conference in San Diego. (They have them in other places around the country as well.) They do the hard part of getting you the interviews, then it’s up to you to sell yourself. I littered the base where I’m at as well as the country with applications and resumes and got 0 results. 3 interviews at the hiring conference, 2 call-backs and 2 offers later, I got a job. Easy! It works! Do yourself, and your family a favor and go to / and check them out!”

“Thank you very much for the assistance you provided in my recent transition. One Hiring Conference, 2 interviews, position secured, couldn’t have asked for a better transition. This was my first interview ever and Richard and Damon had me ready. Lucas Group will always have my recommendation for any transitioning military personnel. Again, BRAVO ZULU!”
